Looking for a guilt free dessert? This Raw Avocado Lime Mousse is going to work. Not only tasty but also heart assess certified! Oh, and made with just 3 ingredients. What could possibly be better than that?
I would like to begin this post by getting something out of the way: I am pregnant! Woohoo!
The reality is I’ve been planning an announcement post soon, so if you’re reading this post you’re just one of the first to know. I’m attributing it on my dearth of blogging organization, they wind up becoming published at different dates and where sometimes I write posts in a certain order. Oh well… now you understand!
But holy cow, I’ve been so tired recently! This pregnancy is definitely kicking my ass in ways I never imagined were possible.
So even though I woke up at 10 am (Don’t judge me! This is a crime to judge a poor pregnant woman. I ended up taking a rest in the afternoon. Please follow the link to get more information about best blender reviews.
The thing is, every time that I take a rest, I wake up craving something sweet. That’s when the monster in me comes out and continues to open each and every cabinet, hunting for things that are not so good for you, like all the chocolate I purchased in Italy last Autumn.
Well, now that I have a small human being growing inside of me, I strive to be a little more aware regarding what I eat. So now I kept the monster at bay and I flogged myself some of this yummy Uncooked Avocado Lime Mousse.
This recipe is a spin off variant of the dessert/bite whenever she’dn’t, my grandma used to make had the time. She’d simply mash an avocado, add some sugar and some lime juice so turn brownish would be n’ted by the avocado, and voilá, dessert was served.
I made the decision to be a bit more fancy and combined everything in the blender, because I was searching for a smoother consistency.
I was also extremely tempted to add sweet condensed milk instead of sugar for an even creamier mousse. But I thought of my small gummy bear (and of my gestational diabetes test that is fastly approaching) and decided to substitute the sugar for agave nectar. Honey would likewise work, but I find agave to have a lighter flavor. To get more information you can follow the link best smoothie blender reviews.
I’m still working on accepting the concept of a savory avocado, like in soups, sandwiches, avocado toasts, etc. I’m confident I’ll get there but an avocado dessert will always have my heart!
Nonetheless, there’s no disagreement. Whichever way you eat them, avocados are amazing for you along with your heart!
Fresh avocados are a heart healthy fruit. They offer naturally good fats, are low in saturated fat, and are cholesterol – and sodium – free.
In October 2016, Hass Avocado Board (HAB) and also the American Heart Association (AHA) announced its four-year strategic alliance to motivate Americans to eat the daily recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables, an effort that has the potential to restrict departures from cardiovascular diseases, stroke and diabetes.
Since it they are teaming up to host a recipe competition called Take Avocado to Heart this February.
